Can this man bring back the glory days to Old Trafford?

Manchester United have been the most active team in the transfer market when it comes to signing star names. With the addition of Eric Bailly, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Red Devils look like genuine title contenders under Jose Mourinho.

However, despite signing so many players to complement the high quality that they already possess, there is still a small crack—and it lies in midfield.

They might have a plethora of midfielders, but it seems like Mourinho isn’t content as Schweinsteiger is on the decline, Fellaini was never up to the mark and Juan Mata is… well, let’s just say that Mourinho doesn’t prefer a player of his skillset.

Keeping all this in mind, here are 5 players United could sign to plug the gap in midfield.

#1 Paul Pogba

Can Jose Mourinho’s lure Paul Pogba back to his old hunting ground?

The first name is the obvious one of Paul Pogba. The prodigal son of the Red Devils left the club on a free transfer to Juventus. However, it wasn’t before some real damage was done to their relationship as, according to Pogba’s mother, Sir Alex Ferguson made him cry.

With Mourinho taking over the reins at the Old Trafford, the demand for Pogba has risen to the pinnacle. They have a very strong squad with the additions of Eric Bailly, Henrik Mkhitaryan, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but still lack an all-action midfielder to complete the system.

A Bastian Schweinsteiger at his peak could have done the job, but he is going through somewhat of a declination phase, making it necessary for United to sign a midfielder like Pogba.
